Kitchen Cabinets Tutorial

These Kitchen cabinets were painted by Kim De Jong. Kim is one of Redposie’s paint store favorite customer and a instructor for the Redposie™ Stenciling Workshop. Kim was kind enough to allow Redposie to come in to her home and photo shoot her cabinet painting project. It was a Do-It-Yourself project transforming white kitchen cabinets from drab to fab using Dixie Belle Paint, Dixie Belle Glaze and General Finishes High Performance top coat.
The rich green limeade is just one of 50 colors that the Dixie Belle Paint Company makes. You can find in stock all the  Dixie Belle Paint colors at Redposie™
Before the makeover!
These spectacular distressed kitchen cabinets painted with Dixie Belle paint are perfect for Kim’s cottage style home in historic St. Charles. Missouri.
Pick a work area where you can lay the doors out to paint. Kim placed a large sheet of  plastic on the dining room floor.
In this Two tone kitchen, this Island is made the center of attention with Dixie Belle Grunge Glaze over two coats of Dixie Belle color Sea Glass.
“I used plain chip brushes and it left no brush marks” Kim
This was a unscheduled kitchen makeover, it all started because of some water damage in the kitchen from a upstairs water leak.

    I must be missing something. All that my computer shows is laying the door faces on the floor, then the finished product pictures. Nothing about technique. ???

    My bathroom cabinets are horrible. They are that awful white plastic covered (probably over plywood). The plastic is coming loose around the edge seams. If that is glued down, can chalk paint be used over the plastic, and if so, what prep is used to make it adhere to the plastic?

    Not my style BUT I love what you did for your look! Perfectly cottage. What depth are the green cabinets by the window? They don't look 24" deep but still have drawers. Exactly what I need to create a pantry!
